Wing You Wish Upon a Star...

April 29, 2018

If I could have but one wish granted 

it would be

to live in a universe like this one

at a time like the present

with friends like the ones I have now

and be myself.

 

- Rand Howells

 

I wish. While there are innumerable times that these words have passed our lips, it is likely that very few of those casual wishes were granted. Not because they were unlikely, which they could have been; or because we didn’t wish hard enough, but because for wishes to be made manifest they need to align with our truest heart’s desire.

 

In a Bowspring practice, our wings provide us with a way to physically express feelings of joy and openness. Within each arm and hand position is a manner in which to access the widening of our wingspans, from the very center of Radiant Heart, and the even tone of muscle energy on all sides of our arms and ribs. And much like the wings on a bird, they enable us to create and maintain a lightness of being that is akin to flight. But in truth, the outermost layers of expression begins with the innermost of desires. While many wishes may be impromptu or spontaneous, those desires that reflect our deepest longings are revealed in our movements. No matter if we are aspiring to attain our goals, or cultivating the courage to follow our hearts, or nurturing a deeper relationship with ourselves and our bodies, our practice invites us to reveal our hopes and dreams that we may then make them reality.

 

If you could have but one wish granted Bowpsringer, what might it be? Make some room for you to dream, and then make your way to your practice. Let your wish be more than a single utterance; let it instead be an intention that you whisper again and again, and the wind on which you take flight.

 

I’ll see you all on your mats.
